Why anti-saint? While I haven't been here long, the few saints I've ran into were very rude (a couple even /msg me calling me various names). I don't wish to be that way. I came to this site to help other people when I have time (which is only occationally). And to learn a thing or two I didn't already know. It is a common curousy to be polite, and not start calling people names like we were five years old. I'm sure that not all the saints are rude, I just haven't run across them yet. Maybe my possition will change after I meet a few nicer saints.

[choroba]: Woohoo! Fixed a test that hasn't run for 3 years.
[marinersk]: Corion Yes, sometimes whitespace in column headers is acceptable, but I still consider it be less than desireable if that query might get revectored for an ETL-esque process...
[marinersk]: choroba++
[choroba]: it's a long running test, so it's normally skipped unless an env var is set
[choroba]: nobody has been bothered to set the variable in the last 3 years
[marinersk]: sub newtest{my $expected_result = &target('foo'); my $actual_result = &target('foo'); if ($actual_result eq $expected_result) { &tdd_success(); } else { &tdd_fail(); } } # Test works after three years!
[choroba]: or nobody bothered...
[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
